Will Youtube and Instagram be closed in Russia today?
So, friends, interesting events are outlined here, tonight in Russia can completely block Youtube and Instagram. The reason for this was the recent movieAlexey Navalnyon his YouTube channel, in which Aleksey published another investigation about Russian corrupt officials; in just 6 days, the video has gained almost 5 million views.
Under the cut - the details of the events, as well as an important question.
01. It all started with the investigation of Alexei Navalny, in which the "escort services employee" appears, a certain Nastya Rybka from Bobruisk. In his investigation film, Navalny told about the oligarch Deripaska and the official Prikhodko, and he took the facts for the investigation itself from Nastya Rybka's instagram, as well as from her book about seduction of billionaires.
02. Literally a few days after Alexey’s publications, a Russian court in Ust-Labinsk allowed Oleg Deripaska’s “protection of intellectual property” lawsuit and called for restricting access to Navalny’s investigation. What would you understand, Ust-Labinsk is Oleg Deripaska's hometown.After the claim was satisfied, Roskomnadzor demanded that the investigation of Navalny be removed, otherwisethreatening to block Youtube on the territory of Russia, and at the same time Instagram.
Here is a chronology of events was posted on the website Meduza:
03. Bulk did not delete anything, “Hour X” comes today, here are two bulk tweets on the topic:
February 14 has come, and youtube and instagram are still working. What are you, Roskomnadzor?- Alexey Navalny (@navalny) February 14, 2018
I was corrected: it turns out that hour X will come in the evening- Alexey Navalny (@navalny) February 14, 2018
So it goes.
